Below you will find a list of helpful resources about medical marijuana and outreach programs:
Medical Cannabis Outreach Facebook Page
Out of compassion for others who needed to gain access to the Illinois medical cannabis program, we decided to make an impact in people’s lives through outreach, advocacy, and access to compassionate doctors.
The Medical Cannabis Community
At The Medical Cannabis Community, we create and maintain online communities through the use of social media and digital advertising, to connect medical cannabis patients, advocates, consumers, industry members and everyone else involved together. United, we continue our mission to amplify the voices of those who drive our work.
Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Americans For Safe Access
The mission of Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is to ensure safe and legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use and research. ASA works to overcome political, social and legal barriers by creating policies that improve access to medical cannabis for patients and researchers through legislation, education, litigation, research, grassroots empowerment, advocacy and services for patients, governments, medical professionals, and medical cannabis providers.
